Wireless Standards Group Changes Rules For Parity

The IEEE 802.20 working group has changed its voting rules after allegations that Qualcomm Inc. was trying to dominate the process.

In the past IEEE members voted as individuals no matter what company they were affiliated with. Now each entity, ie vendors, research groups, universities, etc will have only one vote and thus limit the ability of one company to sway voting results. Paul Nikolich, Chairman of the 802.20 Committee hopes the change will push forward the standard decision.
